What is Face and Body Reading?

Generally, face and body reading is used to identify an individual’s character and personality through specific body and face features. But, for Chinese face reading, it goes beyond that to detect a person’s fortune, prosperity, lack, and the condition of our homes and environment. Face reading or reading body is also called physiognomy and was initially used for fortune-telling in China, Korea, and India. But even though it originated in Asian countries, we can all agree that reading body language is something we all pay attention to as individuals, companies, and businesses.

How to Read Facial and Body Language?

When it comes to face reading Chinese medicine, every detail is essential to interpret an individual correctly. Chinese face reading uses a face map that divides the face into sections connected to various age groups, personalities, and body organs. The face is divided into three parts based on age group; the forehead- 15-30 years, the middle part- 31-50 years, and the lower/ chin area represents after 50 years.

Just from looking at the face alone, we can get so much personal information starting from the eyes, brows, lips, facial expressions, ears, and many more.  Here are some valuable examples to guide us through:

  • Face shape reading provides many clues to who a person is. 
    • A round face represents a cheerful, easy-going, and generous person. 
    • The square shape means a smart, rich, and motivated person
    • The triangular-shaped face represents a passionate, active, perseverant individual
    • Rectangular-shaped faces are usually associated with honesty, good leadership qualities, and strong physical strength.
  • Face reading for the eyes involves many aspects, like the size and distance between both eyes. Small-sized eyes are seen in reserved people, while individuals with big eyes tend to be more passionate. 

Regarding the distance between both eyes, a small eye distance signifies a strong ability to concentrate and pay attention to details, while a bigger space gives a more chilled and relaxed vibe.

  • For nose face reading, a big-sized nose usually goes with an ambitious and independent person. 
  • Mouth and lips: wide mouth represents a cheerful, extroverted person, while a small-sized mouth represents more of an introverted person. For face reading lips, thick lips are seen more in people passionate about love, kind and healthy people.
  • Moles: A face map to identify the position and number of moles reveal certain personal information. 
  • Position and postures are nonverbal forms of communication that help in body and face reading. Crossing your arms or expanding them during a discussion gives different meanings. The former makes you appear defensive and disinterested, while the latter provides a more welcoming approach.
  • Gestures like tapping your feet, rolling your eyes, chin nods, and a thumb-up sign are common gestures that help us understand people better.
“To understand the limitation of things, desire them.”
― Lao Tzu

She listens to her patients and administers treatment with expertise and most importantly with care and compassion for the individual.”
